Flick of the Switch Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Rising Power (3:43)
Dog day, it's Tuesday
Hope that girl she'll come today
Hard life, it's a city life
Sweat keep pourin' down
I got my feet up, like to love
Through the dawn till I've blown
All I want's her lovin' now
I love the way she move around
Need no excuse
To let it all hang loose
My body's for abuse
CHORUS:
Rising power, we'll raise the night
Rising power
Rising power, we'll wake the dead
Rising power
(You got it)
Love life, up all night
Darkest hour at the dead of night
Seen her walkin' down the street
The kind of woman that brings on heat
Love her dusk till dawn
Come the morning, she was gone
Took me all to my surprise
Money gone, left high and dry
Need no excuse
To let it all hang loose
My body's for abuse
CHORUS
(Gonna end up torn to shreds)

Don't need no excuse
My body's for abuse
CHORUS

Rise, rise
I'm gonna rise
Rising power
The power rise from you
2. This House Is on Fire (3:23)
Yonder she walked
Yonder she walked, hittin one of dream
A little tongue in cheek, hot poisonality
She bring on the flames, and it's burning and burning
My body's aching, tossing and turning
House is on fire
House is on fire
This house is on fire
And the flame is gonna burn you, you
She got me running for shelter
Needin' quarantine
She got me red hot and wired
Call an emergency
She bring on the flames, and it's burning and burning
My body's aching, tossing and turning
House is on fire
House is on fire
This house is on fire
And the flame is gonna burn you, you
You got me burning and burning
You got me tossing and turning
Burn, burn, burn
This house is on fire, House is on fire
This house is on fire, House is on fire
This house is on fire, This house is on fire
House is on fire
And the flame is gonna burn you,
The flame is gonna burn,
You're gonna burn you
3. Flick of the Switch (3:13)
Well there's a love gone down on mine
Suicidal voltage line
She sends signals outta distress
She devil, she evil
She got you reelin' on a rockin' machine
CHORUS:
With a flick of the switch
With a flick of the switch she'll blow you sky high
With a flick of the switch
With a flick of the switch she can satisfy
She gonna blow you all sky high
Flash the eye, electrify
A power force you should feel
She devil, she evil
She got you screaming on a lightnin' machine
CHORUS
(Give you pain, blow your brain)
Flick the switch, flick the switch
With a flick of the switch, she'll blow you sky high
With a flick of the switch, she can satisfy
With a flick of the switch, she gonna burn you down
With a flick of the switch, razed to the ground
With a flick of the switch
With a flick of the switch
With a flick of the switch, she gonna give you pain
Flick of the switch, she gonna blow your brain, blow your brain

She gonna put the light out on - you
4. Nervous Shakedown (4:27)
"Freeze", said the man cruisin' the beat
"You get your hands up and spread your feet"
"Don't you move an inch", I heard him say
"Or you'll be doin' time until the judgement day"
And he said, "Don't tell me no lies, give me alibis
'Cause if you cross my path, you'll be doin' life"
It's a dirty lie
CHORUS:
It's a shakedown
And it's a nervous shakedown
A nervous shakedown
Another nervous shakedown
It's a shakedown
And it's a nervous shakedown
We got a shakedown
Another nervous shakedown
(It's more like a set-up)
"Take a dime", said the man, "you can make one call
You got a one-way ticket to the County Hall"
Well, the judge looked high and I looked low
And when he smiled at me it was a one-man show
He said, "Two to five, the jury decides
Double parole if you survive"
It's a dirty lie
CHORUS
Law is gonna get you this time
And throw away the key
CHORUS
Shake you down, shake you down
And it's another shakedown
Well it's a shakedown
Another nervous shakedown
Shake you down, shake you down
And it's a nervous shakedown
It's a shakedown
It's a shakedown on - you, yes
5. Landslide (3:57)
I want you to hear me out there
This is for all you bad boys
This is a story of the satan rock 'n' roll
I want you to put your hands in your pocket
Take ten dollars out and send it to me, ha ha
You're the man, a main man [Hallelujah, and amen]
Listen to me baby, I'm gonna say it again
When Momma done school her son
for what he didn't do 'round there
Daddy don't take a no, no, no
Sends him to a (bullet affair?)
This boy is lost
It's a living nightmare
It ain't fair
CHORUS:
That boy he don't know how to lose
He's out to win
He got the lot to call the last shot
Shaker, he's a breaker, he's a maker
He's a landslide, landslide
Walking, talking, rocking landslide
Now Momma he ain't no toy
And never ever gets his share
(Daddy expecting to ???? his son?)
???? room for air
This boy is lost
It's a rocking double dare
He's out to stare
CHORUS
Landslide
Landslide
Landslide
Landslide
(Preacher) done say his prayer
Take him to the promised land
Momma don't love, gonna give him hell
Never gonna get him down
This boy is lost
like a river, follow the course
But he's the boss

CHORUS
Landslide, walking talking rocking landslide
Landslide, Landslide
That man's a one man landslide
Landslide
Landslide
Landslide
That man's a one man landslide
That boy's a walk talk rocking landslide, he's gone
6. Guns for Hire (3:24)
The word is out
That I'm about
And I've come gunning for you
I'm a real entertainer
A mischief maker
A lover of no fixed abode
Quick draw on the floor
No law give you more
Sweet talker, lover of sin
You are what you got
You get what you want
Look out woman -
I got guns for hire
Shoot you with desire
The guns for hire
Shoot you with desire
I'm a wanted poster
A needed man
Running right across the land
I'm a smooth operator
A big dictator
Gonna mark you with my brand
My gun's for hire
Shoot you with desire
Got gun's for hire
Shoot you with desire
(Quick draw on the floor, big shot)
Hot to trot, big shot
Take a lot
Never get the drop on me
I'm a real entertainer
Mischief maker
Lover in seven languages
CHORUS
My gun's for hire
Shoot you with desire
This gun's for hire
Shoot you with desire
Shoot you with desire
Shoot you with desire
A gun's for hire
Shoot you with desire
What you get, but shot
You can't get the drop on me, girl
7. Deep in the Hole (3:19)
I've been enchained
She got shackles on me
That woman to blame
For the hell and misery
Can't find my way outta here
Shoot me down in a burnin' fear
Goin' down for a stretch of years
Way down below
CHORUS:
I'm deep in, deep in, deep in the hole
Deep in, deep in, deep in the hole
I'm down in, down in, down in the hole
Well I'm deep in, deep in
That woman got me deep in the hole
I'm sinking down
She got me down on the floor
Can't touch both walls
The further down I go
Pulls the strings on my violin bow
Makes me sing when she fire my load
Ain't no slave, you do what you're told
You sold your soul
CHORUS
I'm deep in, deep in, deep in the hole
Deep in, deep in, deep in the hole
I'm down in, down in, down in the hole
I'm down in, down in, down in the hole
Deep in the hole, firing your load
Deep in the hole, sell your soul
Deep in, deep in, deep in the hole
Deep in, deep in
That woman got me deep in the hole
Deep in the hole, down in the hole, I'm deep in the hole
8. Bedlam in Belgium (3:52)
The blood in my veins
Was running right through my brain
There was a cop with a gun
Who was running around insane
Three fifty arrests
No bullet proof vest
Now ain't that a shame
We wanted to play
Play for the crowd
"No", said the wankers
"You're on your way out"
Bedlam in Belgium
Bedlam in Belgium
The place was a jumpin'
And the booze was going down
There's a curfew in town
You've been working overtime
We don't play just for pay
So we'd like to stay
Stay just the same
He gave me a crack
In the back with his gun
I bled so bad
I could feel the blood run
Bedlam in Belgium
It was bedlam in Belgium
Bedlam in Belgium
Came for a good time
Left on the run.
Bedlam in Belgium
Who's to blame, it's a shame
Bedlam in Belgium
It was bedlam
You gonna run out
Stage was stage
Cops enraged
Crying for more
It was war, war, war
Bedlam in Belgium
It was bedlam in Belgium
Bedlam in Belgium
Came for a good time
Left on the run.
Bedlam in Belgium
It was bedlam in Belgium
There was bedlam in Belgium
It was bedlam
And the law got the drop on me
9. Badlands (3:38)
I am a pistol packin' man with a gun in my hand
Looking for a woman that will understand
You like to roll and I like to ride
I'll stop at nothing, never take me alive
I'm a man with a fast hand
Loving on a last stand
Outlaw, quick draw
Evil talking bandit man
In the badlands
In the badlands
I got a .45 that'll make you fry
Burn your saucy ass up like the Fourth of July
I ride it hard, I ride it high
Make love to you till you reach for the sky
I'm a man with a fast hand
Loving on a last stand
Outlaw, quick draw
Evil talking bandit man
In the badlands
In the badlands
In the badlands
In the badlands
Well I'm gonna set up my six pack
Ain't gonna back track
I shoot loaded
Come on girl, gonna give you a thrill
In the badlands
In the badlands
In the badlands
In the badlands
In the badlands
In the badlands
Not for a woman [Lookin' for a woman ]
In the badlands
Look man, there's me [As bad as me]
In the badlands
John (?) take it with me [Gotta take it with ya | me]
In the badlands, yeah
10. Brain Shake (4:09)
Alright, hold tight
I want to ball tonight
On my fender, no space defender
I enjoy it on the floor, I get it tight
Toe to toe with a black widow
Fee Fia Foo smell the blood of rock 'n' roll
All night drive on the rockin' suicide
My feet are jumping, she's a joy to ride
Joy to ride, a joy to ride
She's an all night drive on the rockin' suicide
And it's a brain shake, brain shake, brain shake
All I can take
Brain shake, brain shake, brain shake
She's a mean lean rocking machine
A hip hugging blue jean dream
She's a one course dinner, with a sweet sweet kiss
Her hips are right around me
And it's toe to toe with a black widow
Fee Fia Foo smell the blood of rock 'n' roll
All night drive on the rockin' suicide
My feet are jumping, she's a joy to ride
Joy to ride, a joy to ride
She's an all night drive on the rockin' suicide
And it's a brain shake, brain shake, brain shake
Ready to shake
Brain shake, brain shake, brain shake
It's a brain shake brain shake brain shake
For mercy sake
It's a brain shake, brain shake, brain shake
She's a joy to ride
Joy to ride, a joy to ride
She's an all night drive on the rockin' suicide
Brain shake x3
Ready to shake
Brain shake x3
